Ceramic charcoal grills like the Costco Kamado Grill by Louisiana Grills are a great choice for people who love to grill meat (and all sorts of other things too like Pizza, for example!). The Kamado ceramic charcoal grill will pack amazing charcoal flavor and keep your meat moist and tender. It also offers many benefits over a traditional charcoal grill, such as airtightness which means it heats and cooks evenly and there are no ashes flying into your food! The gorgeous bright red Costco Kamado Ceramic Charcoal Grill is not only eye catching, it will grill some fantastic food too!

Add this to my goal backyard update for the summer! This grill sparkles, it’s just gorgeous! Wow! I haven’t used a grill from this brand, but good friends of ours have the green egg and we’ve had plenty of food from a ceramic charcoal Kamado grill, and the food is truly amazing. We really enjoy it. The pizza oven aspect is super cool – we are pizza people – and my husband uses the regular BBQ but its not nearly as even and hot as these – these ceramic charcoal grills are really a foodie must have!


See below for a price comparison of this against the Kamado Joe and the Big Green Egg! This price point has tremendous value – I’d love to know if anyone has this cooker and what your thoughts/recommendations are! Please comment below!

Costco Kamado – Joe Big Joe II Cost Comparison

The Big Joe II 24″ Ceramic Charcoal Grill from Kamado Joe will run you around $1900. That’s more than 3x the cost of the Louisiana Grills 24″ Kamado style 24″ Grill at Costco in-store.

Costco Kamado – Big Green Egg 24″ XLarge Cost Comparison

The Big Green Egg 24″ XLarge will run you around $1299 for the center cooking unit. It doesn’t come with a stand/table, I think many people build them into custom counters – but for comparison sake I think it’s fair to factor a few hundred bucks in for something comparable to what comes with the Louisiana with fold out shelves, say $300 which would make it around $1599 for an apples to apples comparison.

One of the best things about a ceramic charcoal grill is that it will help you to get moist, tender meat every time. If you have ever cooked a steak on the gas grill or in your oven and ended up with dry pieces of beef, then this might be just what you need. The Kamado charcoal grill does an excellent job at locking in the moisture and making sure that your food comes out perfectly juicy every time!
